Give your mind a rest. Meditate, pray, sing, chant; try anything to give your mind a brief rest.

Try it for a week. 

Notice if you feel more relaxed, creative, energetic, peaceful, appreciative, focused or excited.  

                          Extend it to a month.

Five minutes, ten, twenty or more, give your mind a rest.

Experiment with it.
